“If we can start to appreciate that there is a light up there somewhere, maybe that will us to redouble our efforts to … be able to say that’s in the rearview mirror,” said Dr. Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health, during an online forum at Washington National Cathedral.
Together with Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease, and Dr. Luciana Borio, a member of President-elect Joe Biden’s coronavirus task force, the three offered glimmers of hope and easy-to-understand explanations on what it will take to put the COVID-19 pandemic behind us.
